With the Android 4.4.1 update now available for the Nexus 5, we took its updated camera for a spin, but also compared it to the 4.4 camera on a non-updated Nexus 5. It’s pretty obvious through a few simple tests that the 4.4.1 camera is indeed improved. Google told us that we should expect to see “faster focusing, especially in low light, faster white balancing, for truer colors,” and “less shutter lag.” I’d say all of that is true.
We’ll try to put together some camera comparison shots here in a few, but for now, take a look at this quick video to see the differences.
Everyone update using the sideload command? If not, we have instructions here.
Some of our best videos.
